Isn’t state-run propaganda awesome? Here we have one of the angriest, phoniest people on the planet going on a carefully choreographed charm tour to make her appear likable, offering up staged spontaneity. And along comes her lackeys to tell us how warm and fuzzy she is.
Honestly, do they really think anyone’s buying this bullshit? We’re almost embarrassed for this author.
After a difficult summer, Hillary Clinton’s campaign thought their candidate needed a quick boost to her image that would show off her spontaneity and sense of humor.
So, they booked Clinton on daytime television, where she danced the Nae Nae with Ellen Degeneres and her DJ.
She also talked to Extra’s Mario Lopez, of “Saved by the Bell”-fame, about meeting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
And in a late-night appearance on “The Tonight Show” that aired the night of the second GOP debate, she sipped wine in a sketch that had her talking on the phone with host Jimmy Fallon, who played Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, the Republican frontrunner.
After the faux-Trump told Clinton he hadn’t seen her since his last wedding, she replied, “I’m sure I’ll see you at the next one.”
Those close to Clinton say the talk show circuit isn’t so much a mapped-out strategy as an opportunity to showcase Clinton unplugged. They want voters to be introduced to their candidate as a witty woman who likes to gab, meet celebrities, and watch “House of Cards.”
And overall, Clinton’s supporters believe the appearances are paying dividends.
“Anytime I see her looking like my friend, the Hillary Clinton I know, I’m happy about that,” said Ellen Tauscher, the former congresswoman who served as the undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs under Clinton.
Tauscher said she’s been fielding calls about how well the Democratic frontrunner did in her appearance with Fallon in particular.
“She has one of the most ticklish, infectious laughs. When she is laughing at something, everyone else is, too. That’s the Hillary I want people to see more of,” Tauscher said.
The same thing happens in North Korea. When Dear Leader laughs, you better laugh with him. As for us, we’re not laughing with her, we’re laughing at her. A ticklish, infectious laugh? Please.
“I think it’s something people really need to see,” added one longtime ally. “When I tell people she’s one of the funniest people I’ve met, they don’t believe me until they meet her. Then, they can’t stop laughing.”
C’mon, man. You cannot be serious. Tell us, is this forced laughter really ticklish and infectious?
